"The famous Aesop once said in his Fables, "Heaven helps those who help themselves". In fact, Green River College does offer its students a rich spectrum of academics, dedicated faculty and a warm environment. During my time here, I was lucky to be able to maximize these opportunities which allowed me to fortify my educational experience and personal enrichment. I am eternally grateful for meeting the people who guided me towards my dream of attending the University of Pennsylvania. Not to say there weren't obstacles involved, I had more problems than there are security officers on campus, personally, emotionally and mentality. Fortunately, as I mentioned earlier, there were people I met at Green River who will go on to be my allies for the rest of my life. In my humble opinion, that is where I truly got my money's worth."

"In the past one and a half years at Green River, I feel that I have grown more as an individual than I have in my entire life. Not living with my parents has been tough, but the instructors, along with my advisors and supervisors have all been great role models for me. In hindsight, I am glad I chose to attend Green River College."

Major: International Relations

"Green River helped me develop further as a person and a leader. Because I put myself in positions where I had to interact with people from different cultures and countries, I eventually came to the realization that I wanted to study the relations between countries and what makes us the same, not what makes us different. This helped me build the bridge to American University, a university that will further help me with my continuous growth as a person."

"The two years that I spent at Green River has actually surprised me. There are so many possibilities that can be explored and challenged.
